You will be wearing whites and saying Yes Ma'am & Sir, as you serve them their drinks.
And you will be needing a UK license to work on them.

Anyone want to bet they'll ask you to send money to secure your berth. Sounds like those Nigerian scammers have come up with a new con.

P.S. Spelling, syntax, and grammatical errors are the usual give away.

Or, it just might be legit!

Pounds Sterling???

I thought all of Europe was on the Euro...

I wonder how many farthings, shillings and crowns 6,500 pound Sterling adds up to?

silly me

The UK is still using pounds.
